bellpalsy and irritation of optic nerve

ok im really cheesed write now .i developed what seems like bell palsy. my left side of my face tightenedand when i smile its kind of lopsidedi can raise the other cheek up more. the right eye the neuro told me my shining a light there had irritation of the nerves although he did not give it a proper look.
so any way he says he may give me gambepentin at some point----!!
my concern is the following the last two weeks if this isn't something like msseem to have had a viral illness. dizzness sleeping lotsand blistery rashes. so im thinking if its the herpes virus from what i read they should really be giving me aciclovir plus steriods. he says its too late to do that nowbut im still getting symptons
he wants me to wait a month for more tests.

im cross. maybe its not a viral thing. my eye looks kind of funnyandmouth kind of twisted?? is it an ms thing i look terrible. but i know i have had this before looking at photos and how my face has changed even the neuro said i had had it before so why did he do nothing

cross. any ideas zorm
